7:02 am
the weather in south carolina. there's flooding and it's continuing to get worse. at least 11 people have died and we are now considering it a disaster. president obama has said so. al is monitoring the situation from here, but we'll begin with nbc's kerry sanders on the ground in columbia, south carolina. kerry, good morning to you. >> reporter: well, good morning, savannah. they haven't seen the sun here in a week so today there will be sunny skies which will give folks better weather to continue their salvage operation, but state officials fear it will also send a false sense of security that this disaster is over. 181 dams have already breached, and this morning they are watching several others that are weakened that they fear could give out at any moment. this morning in some areas of columbia, south carolina, fell-scale evacuations are in effect. water bursting through several dams, flooding even more neighborhoods. >> if this dam were to breach right now we'd be dead. >> reporter: in the most threatened neighborhoods residents have only enough time
7:03 am
to grab a few possessions and run. >> we're getting people out. >> reporter: for days now the dams have been falling like dominoes. one breaks and floods a neighborhood which in turn causes the next dam down the stream to break and flood yet another neighborhood. power has been returning. fewer than 3,500 customers now in the dark. but as many as 40,000 households are still struggling without running water. bottled water is flying off store shelves. the situation especially dangerous for area hospitals where the fire department has been forced to pump in water. >> we're going to continue to provide the water to the hospital as long as we can sustain it and we just don't know how long we can sustain it. >> that's all mud? >>ia. >> reporter: for many like luke richardson. what do you think when you look around your house? >> not much to say. >> reporter: seeing what the worst storm in south carolina's history did to his home is gut
7:04 am
wrenching. >> you know, you don't ever expect something like this to happen to, you know, until it really happens. >> reporter: in just the last day this area right here was drenched with 20 muches of rain, if another dam breeches officials say the water will rise two feet a minute so, indeed, it could be another day of life-threatening situations. savannah, matt? >> all right, kerry sanders, thanks very much. al is here. the headline here is the rain for the most part has stopped and now it's a question of the residual damage. >> that's right. we have to watch everything going downstream and there's a lot of it, unfortunately, as you can see again this hovey rain. and the problem has been so much rain in such a short period of time. no infrastructure could handle this. as we look at the live radar, can you see currently there are showers pinwheeling around this upper level low. the good news it is getting out of here and the bad news it is this rain has had nowhere to go, and if you look at it charleston
7:05 am
17.3 inches of rain, 450% of their october average. for the year they have gotten 33% of their rain already. myrtle peach very much the same thing. 15.5 inches and 447% of their rainfall and 30% of their yearly average and columbia, where they were not expecting this kind of rain. certainly on average 11.5 inches. that's 355% of what they would normally get. they picked up -- normally a year 44.6 incheses of rain. guys, they got 20% of their rainfall, and all of this rain it is just clogging all the rivers and as it heads downstream it's just go nowhere to go. so the good news is there is no rain in the foreseeable future for the next five or six days. >> we continue to think about the folks down there. >> absolutely. >> al, thank you. the search meantime for survivors intensified overnight as the u.s. coast guard now says it believes the missing cargo ship sank in 15,000 feet of water late last week during
7:06 am
hurricane joaquin. 33 people on board, including 28 americans. the body of one crew member has now been fourngsd and this morning families are speaking out. they are demanding answers. nbc's kristen dahlgren in jacksonville, florida with the late on this story, kristen, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this morning the coast guard tells us time is of the essence. three coast guard cutters stayed out all night. what they are looking for now is someone floating out there who was somehow able to make it through this storm. after four days of searching, a sign of just how rough hurricane joaquin was on the "el faro." one of the ship's life boats found torn apart by the massive waves. >> about 75% of was damaged so very bad shape. >> reporter: body of one victim was also found. even for experienced mariners in neoprene survival suits like this one, the conditions would be tough. >> they were abandoning a ship into a category 4 hurricanes 1, 40-mile-an-hour winds, up to
7:07 am
50-foot waves, zero visibility. >> reporter: lesean rivera was the ship's cook, a father to two with a baby due this month. >> those are things that keep you alive. if there's a fight to be fought, he's fighting. >> reporter: for some there is also anger. >> in my judgment, you never should have sailed through those waters, period. >> reporter: it wasn't the first time that "el faro" sailed into a storm. just last month after tropical storm erika crewman clark posted this picture of a flooded ship. he wrote our ship made it through the storm. no rough weather can stop us from getting the cargo here. ship owner tote maritime says joaquin was a tropical storm when "el faro" left and had it not lost propulsion the ship would have been able to skirt the storm. >> what's regrettable in this is the fact that the vessel did become disabled in the path of the storm. >> reporter: now the company is promising to do all it can for the families as they wait for word on their loved ones still
7:08 am
lost at sea. >> that is our family that's at sea, and we want to make sure that we bring them home. >> reporter: there is no word on how much longer the search will continue, but we do know that this morning an ntsb team is on its way to jacksonville, matt and savannah to investigate. >> kristen dahlgren, thank you. >> let's turn now to the race for the white house, and there's movement on the republican side. in the most recent nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, a national poll, florida senator marco rubio is now tied for third place, and what a coincidence. marco rubio, good morning. >> good morning. >> nice to see you, senators, how are you? >> you're one of the first people that we've been able to see here in the last month or so where can i say you had a good september. >> we feel good about it. we felt good about the entire campaign. it's a long road but it's a lot of fun to do this, to go out around the country and get to the meet people and talk about the issues. >> good news, bad news. good news, the polls are up and bad news that makes you a target for some of your opponents. let me tell you what some people are saying about you. jeb bush is telling people that
7:09 am
when he was governor of florida he led and you followed. donald trump has apparently sent you some kind of a gag gift meant to poke fun of the fake that you have a tendency to perspire. from the other side debbie wasserman schultz tweeted someone had to say it, marco rubio is no foreign policy kid. flattered? >> yeah. that's what happens. when people are running for office they are looking for something that will give them a competitive advantage and if they think talking bad about someone is going to give them that, that's what they will do. apparently the water is very high quality water. it's top notch water that he sent us, that donald trump sent us so we're grateful for the gift. >> let me ask you a serious question about the attendance, one the topics people have hit you on lately. 29% of the time over the last year were you not in attendance when votes were taken in the senate. >> yeah. >> and i know you say you're running for president, but your record before that wasn't great either. are you placing your own personal ambitions above your responsibilities to your constituents down in florida? >> no, in fact, majority of the
7:10 am
job of being a senator is not walking on to the senator floor and lifting your finger on a non-controversial issue and say which way you're going to vote. majority work, the constituent service and work continues unabated. everyone who has run for president in the past has face this. there are times when you're not going to be there. we've cancelled events and traveled across the country to make votes, especially if we can make a difference or a high-profile issue. >> you don't think you're putting your ambitions above florida? >> my ambitions are for the country and florida and that's why i'm running for president and i honestly believe if i can become elected president we can fix some of these issues that we've been unable to address during my time in the senate. >> an issue coming up, should kevin mccarthy mcspeaker of the house? >> i don't opine on the leadership bodies of the other house. i know kevin but not well. >> you don't get at vote but he made some very controversial comments recently which seemed to tie the work of the house benghazi committed to a political move to damage hillary
7:11 am
clinton in the polls. does that disqualify him from being speaker of the house? >> i don't think it disqualifies him. i think it's a bad idea to opine on the leadership race of the body. they will get to choose the speaker of the house. they know him better. there's a campaign going on over there for that office. we'll let them choose the speaker and will work whatever it is. >> if i say to you a young man 26 years old living in oregon with a history of mental illness according to his own mother owned 14 guns, what's the first thing that comes to your mind. >> that his family shouldn't have allowed him to do it, he should have been reported to authorities there. should have been more mental health services available for someone like that. what i know is there, many of the proposals that are out there now on gun control would not have have prevent that had attack or some of the others we've seen in the past. unfortunately, in cases of mental illness or in the cases of someone who just wants a gun to carry out a crime, they are not going to follow the law, they aren't. >> how would you lead on this issue? if you're the president of the united states, how would you lead so that issues and cases like the oregon community college shooting do not continue to repeat themselves. >> well, a couple points to make
7:12 am
on this. number one, we need to start examining why it is people are taking violent sacks action, not what they are used to go commit the violent act with. we have two issues, one is mental illness we need to address more seriously as opposoppose ed stigmatizing it or pushing it aside and the other, of course, why have we become so violent as individuals? what is it that's leading people in this country not mentally ill to do the sort of drive-by shooltdings and things? >> we have two issues, why are people so violent, mental illness. you do not see guns as an issue at all. >> guns are what they are used to go commit the violence. again, in many of the cases the laws actually being propose would not have prevented them. these were not assault riflts, handguns he purchased. the same was true in a previous attack just a few weeks ago. the law that many are propose would go have done nothing to prevent these attacks. >> let me ask you one little thing before you leave. in a recent interview, former clinton campaign manager said that the ticket that worries the
7:13 am
democrats the most is rubio/kasich or kasich/rubio. >> i like rubio/kasich better or rubio someone else. we have a very talented bench of people running on republican side. we're fortunate to have that. the democrats are still struggling to come up with one. >> would you agree to be part of that ticket in either direction? >> i want to be the top of the ticket. that's why i'm running for president. that's why i feel good about our campaign. >> senator marco rubio, good to have you in the studio. >> turning now to natalie. you're starting in washington. >> good morning. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is facing tough questions on capitol hill today surrounding that u.s. air strike on a doctors without border hospital over the weekend. that attack killed 22 people in kunduz. nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel is in istanbul. richard, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, natalie. i think generally campbell is going to have a lot to talk about. first, troop level. that is what he was meant to testify about, and he's going to be asked whether troop levels should remain at 10,000 or
7:14 am
should some extra troops stay on in the country even beyond 2016 when the vast majority of those 10,000 troops are supposed to come home. an indication of how volatile afghanistan is, how strong the taliban remains is what has happened this weekend in kunduz. the taliban took over kunduz which is a major afghan city and while afghan forces were trying to retake kunduz and push the taliban out and they did manage to do it, there was this tragic event at the doctor's without borders hospital. initially the u.s. military said that it fired on the hospital because american troops were in danger. then yesterday the u.s. change the the story saying that it fired on the hospital killing, by the way, 22 people. doctors without borders says it is a war crime. the u.s. said it fired on it only after receiving a direct request from the afghan military. three concurrent investigations are under way.
7:15 am
natalie? >> richard engel in istanbul for us, thank you, richard. well, president obama will travel to roseburg, oregon, on friday to meet with the relatives of the victims of last week's community college shooting and meanwhile staffers and students were allowed to returned to the campus on monday to gather the possessions left behind. classes won't resume until next week. terminally ill patients can now be prescribed life-ending drugs in california. governor jerry brown signed the controversial measure into law on monday making california the fifth state to enact a right-to-die law. brown, a lifelong catholic, said he struggled with the decision, but in the end he reflected on what he would want in the face of his own death. as many of you sit down for breakfast this morning a major recall to tell you b.general mills is recalling an estimated 1.8 million boxes of cheerios and honey nut cheerios. the boxes were labeled gluten-free, but the cereal could actually contain wheat.
